520    By combining theoretical analysis and empirical 
       investigation, this monograph investigates the status of 
       interfaces in Minimalist linguistic theory, second 
       language acquisition and native language attrition. Two 
       major questions are currently under debate: (1) what 
       exactly makes a linguistic phenomenon an 'interface 
       phenomenon', and (2) what is the specific role that the 
       interfaces play in explaining language loss and persistent
       problems in second language acquisition? Answers to these 
       questions are provided by a theoretical examination of the
       role that economy and computational efficiency play in 
       recent Minimalist models of the language faculty, as well 
       as by evidence obtained in two empirical studies examining
       the acquisition and attrition of two interface phenomena: 
       Spanish subject realization and word order variation. The 
       result is a new definition of 'interface phenomena' which 
       deemphasizes syntactic complexity and focuses on the 
       effect of interface interpretive conditions on syntactic 
       structure. This work also shows that representational 
       deficits cannot be ruled out in the acquisition and 
       attrition of interface structures
